The semester started in January and I have to admit, this time around, I am a horrible procrastinator. Normally I work ahead, so that I don't have to panic over tests or assignments, but I think because the video for Clin Path is wiping the floor with me, my anxiety has transmuted into apathy. I'm still chugging along, thankfully, but this is why I've been MIA from DW/LJ for the last few weeks.

I am, however, halfway done with my video and I'm actually doing B-level work in A&P (which I'll take despite wanting an A), so I can finally divert my attention from "WHAT THE HELL IS THAT CELL?" to fandom again. I should probably focus on my apartment some, but, well...

Unfortunately, I won't be making the Romancing McShep deadline. I do plan to hold onto the prompts and continue working on the fills until I can eventually post them to AO3, but with tomorrow being the final posting day, I won't make it. But I do have fills of the comment_fic kind:

Deaged AU (Jack/Sam, The boys)
Any, Any, Magic Dance (David Bowie)
Author's Choice, any ensemble, arguing over who gets to pick the film for group movie night
Stargate Atlantis, Rodney McKay, despite his preference for airline food and MREs, he's actually quite proficient in the kitchen

NASA AU (John/Rodney)
Stargate Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay, Rodney taking care of sick John

Before I Sleep AU (Past John/Rodney, John & Rodney)
Stargate Multiverse, Any,

The distance is what’s killing me
Time and space have become the enemy

(Hot Chelle Rae)


Lemony AU (John/Rodney)
Stargate Atlantis, Sheppard/McKay, kitchen staff didn't notify of lemon in the food

Post-Series (John/Rodney)
Stargate Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay,

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough

(Snow Patrol)


MCU (Steve/Bucky)
Marvel Cinematic Universe, Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers, You Are My Once In A Lifetime

Skyfall (James Bond/Q)
Any, Any m/m, "And... and much as it grieves me to say it, it... it might be that the people I love is, in fact... you."

I've been pretty much MIA the last week and it's mainly due to the insanity currently gripping my country. My twitter is all politics all the time (sorry to anyone looking for fandom stuff) and my FB is basically a battleground between my pro-Trump Uncle and I. I've been unable to take my attention from either one of those to focus on anything fandom-related and I apologize since it means I immediately fail in some of my resolutions to write more.

Apparently, being enraged and terrified by what's happening lends itself to writer's block.

I've sending money left and right to places like Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. Mom and I have been watching livestreams of the protests in Orlando and Boston while making our signs for NYC and talking about how the country is on figurative fire, what this means for the future, and the fact that after a lifetime of idolizing MLK Jr, FDR, TR, Washington, and Jefferson, I'm not going to flee for Canada (or Scotland as my friend A demands) but I'm going to stand and fight. My father, of course, wanted me to understand that things are going to get worse before they get better--he watched it during the 60s & 70s re: civil rights & Vietnam--and I told him that I expect it because this is only the first week: These cowards are only getting started.

That said, I'm not sure what's going to happen in the coming weeks. I may be on more as I need breaks from reality, I may be on less as I get my ass to more marches, I may be on the exact same amount. Hopefully in the very least, since I always have homework to do, I'll be able to get some fills/writing done in between moments of cursing at my computer because I've been stumped by yet another anatomy & physiology question.

Political related stuff.Collapse )

And then there's this app I found.Collapse )

I did 2 fills today on comment_fic. One HP (Harry/Hermione/Draco), one SG Multiverse (Deaged AU). I've got a few more prompts I'd like to get something written for this week, plus some additional work on the 007 AU. I still need to look at the romancingmcshep prompts for something additional to work on (also back up in case the AU does to me what Catalyst did to me last year and turns into a monster that I barely finished on time).

I've slowed down posting prompts a bit, which I blame on how tired I was last week from work. I intend to get back in the habit this week since things look like they'll be a bit better: one of our vets is on a month-long vacation to Australia & New Zealand and there's only so much covering the other two vets can do, so like as not, we'll have the opportunity to take days off/leave early. It'll give me time for the comm and for homework which I definitely will need this semester.

Follow up on cats: strawberry mint tea when sapped out of a rug onto a towel with white stripes looks like cat pee and smells just enough like it to question your sanity. Both of my terrors (boy & girl) are fine, thankfully, despite having a mama who can be tricked by tea.

I got home tonight after a relatively decent day--three cats in the kennel, but 2 are post-spays and docile enough to handle; 1 is a medical case and I've been calling him an angry panther--to realize that this morning's poke in the eye might actually be an abrasion. My eye hurts and I just want to keep rubbing it, so hopefully if it's not ragingly painful in the AM, I can snatch a bottle of triple antibiotic eye drops from our supply and give a rest from the contacts for a few days.

I was actually looking for my slightly older bottle of triple drops when I discovered that one of the cats peed on a towel I'd left on the floor in the bathroom. This normally would have been an annoyance, but it was a towel that has intermittent white stripes and they were decidedly pinkish/red so someone has bloody pee. Given that they're both acting a little clingy it's hard to judge who it was; I may end up bringing both of them to work tomorrow, God help me. O.O

comment_fic has had a few prompts that have revived the Raising Sons & Vivat Rex AUs. Foiled by Thermodynamics even had another fill to it, though I'm not anticipating as much added to that as the others. I added them to the Master Posts, and spent part of last night uploading Vivat Rex to AO3. While the MP for that one is in timeline order, the AO3 is chaptered by the dates I wrote/posted each one. I'm torn about doing the same for Raising Sons.

The Prompts List for Romancing McShep is up. Yay! I'm looking forward to browsing through this year's suggestions to see if I can come up with something more than my 007 AU idea. I'd like something more Canon-compliant since I know AUs are not everyone's cup of tea. (I personally blame the Harlequin challenge from years and years ago for my love of the genre. Because seriously, there was a fic where John was a horse rancher and Rodney was a vet and I still think about it.)

Also on my mind: an SG kink meme. I'm contemplating starting one up because Kink Memes are what kept me writing after I left SGA fandom and I still adore them. ST, Thor, Avengers... I enjoyed every interaction I had on them, good and bad, and continue to fill prompts on the Avengers one when I get the urge. If I decide to pursue it, I'll definitely be doing an interest post first--I tried running an SG KM years ago (the comm might still be on LJ, actually. It is. I deleted the fucking mod account and never transferred ownership. I wonder how I go about reclaiming it since the mod account was purged. :/ ) but I don't think we got more than a handful of fills.

I've been obsessed with watching Skyfall the last few days. A, because Bond & Q and the snark, and B, because I have this draw to a specific exchange:
M: Is this where you grew up?
James Bond: Mm.
M: How old were you when they died?
James Bond: You know the answer to that. You know the whole story.
M: Orphans always make the best recruits.

It has taken me until about five minutes ago to figure out why, but, well, I might have come up with a possible crossover fic for this year's romancingmcshep. I foresee many a lunch break at work scribbling frantically in a notebook while hissing at anyone who comes close.

The mice will play: we've got a few minutes downtime at work, so I'm reading fic in our instrument room.

If only I had enough time to do some writing...

While I'm not ready (in any way) for this semester to start, it's a good thing I'm getting back into the thick of it. One of my coworkers fractured her elbow and has been unable to do much with her arm because of the pain (why do human doctors give us ibuprofen and think that's enough?), so I've been getting plenty of training in as I've had to be tech and assistant. There was one day that I was putting IV catheters in every patient since our other tech was tied up with a dental, another where I was drawing blood like a champ. And tomorrow I'll be doing anything and everything that I'm comfortable with as we've got a too-full procedure schedule.

Downside: I've had a headache for 36 hours and neither NSAIDs nor my migraine meds have done more than take the edge off. Hopefully, this won't interfere too much.

My Skyfall kick is seeming to turn into a bit of remembering why I loved Bond/Q. I've rewatched the movie a few times now and been going through various rec lists of fic. I don't feel like I have a good grip on Bond's character, so I don't know if I'll be writing any. But, well, it's possible that I may have few thoughts on fusing elements into an AU with one of the fandoms I'm vastly more comfortable with. We'll see.

I discovered a community on DW similar to comment_fic called [community profile] fic_promptly. I figure if I'm going to broaden my horizons with the journal sites, I might as well try to find comms I'm interested in hanging out at fic-wise. If only there were more kink memes.

Does anyone know of a good app/client for mobile? I've been using LJ's own app, but it obviously doesn't work for Dreamwidth and has suddenly stopped refreshing. Since I do a lot of thinking and mental writing for prompts and fic during the day (read: when it's q-word at work), the app is helpful.

And using chrome is a damn power suck.
